Qualification:MSc Child Art Psychotherapy, BA (hons) Social Science, Foundation in Person Centred Art Psychotherapy (IACP), Dip. Criminology, Graduate Member of ACAP

Julie is a psychodynamic psychotherapist trained in the Vasarhelyi Method of Child Art Psychotherapy through the UCD Master’s programme.

Julie has over 15 years’ experience as a social care worker and three years working as a therapist with children and adolescents from various cultures and settings. She has worked in services for domestic violence, disability, homeless, detention, residential care and with separated children seeking asylum.

She is a skilled listener and communicator which enables her to assist and understand the young person’s thoughts, imagination and emotions through exploration of the images they produce in each session.

Julie believes that fostering consistency and being with the young person by witnessing their unconscious processing can assist with nurturing a better understanding of themselves. The child can externalise their inner world and recognise their patterns of behaviour that may lead to feelings of relief from their symptoms through shifting or managing their negative thought structures.

Julie has worked closely with children and adolescents in care, at risk of care and on a multi-disciplinary team with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and TUSLA.

Julie is available to work short or long term with children and young people from ages 5-18 .

She is experienced in working with young people who struggle with
separation and loss,
low mood,
emotional dysregulation and school refusal.
